Publisher's Summary

The men in the tan-and-cream Chrysler came with guns blazing. When Ray Kelly woke up in the hospital, it was a month later, he was missing an eye, and his father was dead. Then things started to get bad. From the mind of the incomparable Donald E. Westlake comes a devastating story of betrayal and revenge, an exploration of the limits of family loyalty and how far a man will go when everything he loves is taken from him.

Long winded pulp gangster story

Generally I have enjoyed almost every hard case crime book I’ve read. And I’m always willing to experiment and try new one. But I found this Westlake book to be sub par. It’s interesting to illustrate a point in time in pulp fiction when authors were paid for the word and it showed. There are a few moments that are excellent but the book is overwhelmed by a slow pace, weak character development and a plot that just barely comes together. There are a few good surprises but I think there are other books and authors in the hard case crime series who have done it better

Nice and hard-boiled.

A solid story with a good performance. Has that gritty, hardcore, old old-school crime.story feel.
